Introduction to Computational Thinking & Physical Computing

Location: Brookhaven National Laboratory (Upton, NY)

Program overview

This six-hour academy is designed to give educators an understanding of what physical computing is and how they can integrate it into their curriculum to deepen learning.  Educators will learn why physical computing is a powerful teaching tool, how MakeCode.com and micro:bit support physical computing projects, and what resources are available to design content-based physical computing units.  It is aimed at educators for whom physical computing is relatively new and who are looking to implement lessons in their classroom right away. This training will explore physical computing through hands-on activities that will introduce educators to the principles of physical computing and the resources available as well as collaborative activities that will encourage participants to work together to design a lesson for their class.

Objectives

  • Understand the basic principles of
    • computer science,
    • computational thinking, and
    •  physical computing
  • Learn how MakeCode.com and micro:bit promote physical computing
  • Design a physical computing lesson

Target Audience

The primary audience for this session is teachers (3-12), empowering educators teaching in a variety of settings and content areas.  With the growing expectation for integrating computer science education into classes, teachers of all content areas will benefit from this course.

Unity In The Classroom - Week 5 of 5

Unity 3D in the Classroom

This program is designed to support educators in bringing a new approach to teaching into their classroom.Unity is a design platform utilized in the industry to develop digital animation projects. These projects can be utilized for video games, and interactive applications. Learning physics and math concepts through Unity can transform students and create an excitement for learning.

Through the Unity platform Educators will learn how to engage students to learn in a fun interactive experience, transforming the traditional classroom.  Teaching how an object in a game must accelerate correctly and be affected by collisions, gravity and other forces. Unity’s built-in physics engines provide components that handle the physical simulation for you. With just a few parameter settings, you can create objects that behave passively in a realistic way. By controlling the physics from scripts, you can give an object the dynamics of a vehicle, a machine, or even a piece of fabric. From physics to math, digital animation projects use algebraic, geometric, and trigonometric relationships to define game object characteristics and properties.
